Unhappy High Unemployment Rate Affects Our Pets

I was browsing on Yahoo and read this article about the high unemployment rate.

The unemployment rate has hit double digits for the first time since 1983 -- and is likely to go higher. The 10.2 percent jobless rate for October shows how weak the economy remains even though it is growing. The rising jobless rate could threaten the recovery if it saps consumers' confidence and makes them more cautious about spending as the holiday season approaches.

A lot of people are jobless especially in the bay area. A lot of pets are losing their homes. Their lives are impacted by the economy. What about your area? Are you worried about those pets?

Default It seems to be nationwide

The economy seems to affecting the whole country. I hope pets still receive good food and love, but I know that in some foreclosure situations, they are left behind or put in pounds. It's sad for sure.
Have a great day! Judy
